The Lady Blue Jays — making their second straight trip to the national tournament — ended the season with a 17-11 record. It was the first-ever meeting between Westminster and Simpson.

The Storm (26-2), qualifying for the Division III tournament for the ninth year in a row, set a school record and tied another mark, respectively, Friday night for the program’s largest margin of victory and most points scored in a tournament game.
